How to fix Samsung Galaxy buds low volume in one ear

There may be many reasons behind this underlying problem for your Galaxy buds, we will go through each troubleshooting and check to see which will work best for you I recommend you to read this article very careful since will help you understand well

Try cleaning your Galaxy buds

It is pretty obvious that ears have earwax in them and they can go inside the buds. When the wax accumulates then there can be an audio imbalance issue with the Samsung Galaxy Buds. The fix is pretty simple. What I did is clean the buds.

you can use a cotton bud and dipped one of the sides in nail polish remover. With that done, I removed the rubber part that goes inside the ears. Once that is done you will see the silver mesh from where the audio comes from. Turn this facedown and rub the wet cotton bud on the mesh side. This way if you have too much nail polish on it, it will not leak into the bud.

Once you have done one of the buds you can use a dry cotton bud to clean off the residue and kind of dry up the nail polish remover from the silver mesh part of the bud. Do the same for the other Samsung Galaxy Bud. This should do the trick and improve the audio.

I had an issue where I had no audio in one of the buds. I cleaned the bud once and got some audio out of it. Then I repeated the process once again and the issue was fixed entirely. Note that this is a fix that worked for me. It might not work for you and you might have a different underlying problem.
